At the Life University photoshoot, there will be staff photographers on site to capture cosplayers in their glory against a variety of backgrounds. The fall leaves should be at their peak. Backgrounds around the photoshoot site on Life University Campus include bridges, a creek, a pond, an old village with a mill, stone walls and stone benches, and a small waterfall.

Cosplayers on Ice 2014
Who: Open to all
What: Ice Skating & Photoshoot
When: Sunday, Dec. 7th, 3pm-6pm
Where: Centennial Park Ice Rink
Costs: Photoshoot, free. The park charges a rink fee and a small skate rental fee, if you wish to skate.
MomoCon will be invading Centennial Park for a seventh year of fun on-and-off the ice! Door prizes will be given away, courtesy of MomoCon on Tour. A photographer will also be onsite to capture the days events. Cosplayers are asked to leave all weapon-props at home for this very-public event.
The photoshoot is free, but skating costs $10 (including skate rental). All costume types are welcome, and we will be taking many shots in and around the rink and the park. Toward the end of the shoot, all cosplayers are asked to gather at the steps under the large Christmas tree for a group shot!
Why is the shoot on a Sunday this year? In previous years, the SEC game was held at the Georgia Dome on the same day as Cosplayers on Ice. This caused terrible traffic and greatly increased parking rates. To avoid this problem, we are hosting Cosplayers on Ice on Sunday. The Falcons will not be playing a home game that day either, so traffic should be minimal in the area.
